I have two five-string basses and a six-string bass, and I just don't feel happy with any of them. The low B strings on all of them are tubby, unclear, and not very musical. The high C string on my sixer is thin-sounding and blah. The sixer has other problems, too: the frets, despite having the edges dressed, are still sharp and grab into my hand (and the frets are steel, so the local luthiers want to charge extra to work on them), and the pickups/electronic system is also uninspiring. It's also heavy! My amp is light, portable, and powerful; but the sound is also kind of bland. I mostly play jazz, funk, and classic rock, so maybe the more modern sounds just aren't hitting the right spots. I kind of want to sell all my gear and get a jazz bass with rounds, a P bass with flats, and maybe a Stingray. Go back to the traditional instruments that I know work. Have any of you ever felt this way? How did you handle it? Did you go through with it? How did that work out for you?
